2020 CHRISTMAS MINI SESSIONS
Location :
1485 Riverbluff Drive
Hastings, MN

I am so excited for these mini sessions and I can’t wait to create beautiful photos for you!  These minis will be outdoors and socially distanced per Covid restrictions.  I also plan to wear a mask to ensure my clients are even more comfortable. If you have any concerns please don’t hesitate to reach out. 

WHERE DO WE MEET?
*Please plan on arriving a few minutes early so we can start shooting right at your scheduled start time.

These mini sessions will be outdoors at my home in Hastings.  The address is 1485 Riverbluff Drive (the very last house on the left). Please park in or closest to the cul-de-sac and plan to wait in your car (to keep warm as well as to limit gathering for Covid precautions) until your scheduled session time. 

WHAT TO BRING:
As another Covid precaution,  I am asking al clients to please bring their own blanket (this will be used for some sitting poses as well as to wrap up in for a few snuggly shots).

Some prop ideas if you choose to bring any: hot cocoa, candy canes, hats, scarves, mittens, Christmas book.

WHAT DO WE WEAR?
For your planning purposes, I plan to incorporate the colors: gold, dark greens, whites and reds into this setup.

It’s best to keep the coordinating simple. Try not to overthink it.  I recommend picking 2-3 complementary colors and carry them throughout your outfits.  You may want to dress warmly (plenty of layers) since we will only be taking photos outdoors.  Scarves and hats make cute props as well as keep you toasty during your session. 

*Don’t forget to choose something that your family will feel good in!  It will shine through in your photos!  CLICK HERE FOR IDEAS

WHEN WILL I SEE MY PHOTOS?
You will see a sneak peek within 24 hours and in about a week from your session, I will have your final images edited and in your own private online viewing gallery.  You will then be able to download them instantly in high resolution for printing as you wish!

*I do recommend using a high quality print lab such as MPix or Nations Photo Lab for best results.
